Jubilee United Church, in Don
Mills, has been created by amalgamating three congregations in the Toronto
area. DLIA was retained to complete
a feasibility study for the new facility at the former Donminster United
The report entailed reviewing the constraints on the site - municipal
by-laws, state of the existing 40 year old buildings and services, and site
Working with the building committee, and the research that they had
completed, a building programme was developed, which indicated that
approximately 15,000 sq. ft. of space was required for this congregation to
meet their programme needs.
Six options for redevelopment were reviewed ranging from renovations and
minor additions to a completely new Church. The building committee opted to
recommend a major renovation (keeping the "good bones") and
significant additions to the south and east of the existing Church.
The Church was completed and occupied in September, 2004.
